SEATTLE, Wash. — Russell Wilson responded on social media to the recent trade he was involved in.

He said he was “forever grateful” and he loves Seattle in his farewell tweet to the city.

Russell Wilson played 10 seasons for the Seahawks, winning Super Bowl 48 in his third season with the team.

The Seahawks announced the trade to send Wilson to Denver at around 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday. The trade will send Denver’s QB Drew Lock, DL Shelby Harris, TE Noah Fant, and two first-round and second-round picks to Seattle.

The Seahawks later released Bobby Wagner the same day, the last remaining player on the Seahawks roster from the 2014 Super Bowl.
